SM Entertainment and JYJ have failed to reach an agreement on the issues surrounding the members’ TVXQ contract.
The trial between SM Entertainment and the members of JYJ took place on August 10 at 4PM KST in Seoul Central District Court. SM Entertainment’s representative Kim Young Min, along with lawyers from both sides, were present to debate the issue. The members of JYJ were not present for this trial.
In the 1-hour-30-minute trial, each side expressed their sentiments to the court, and afterwards, both sides expressed their opinions to each other. This day, Representative Kim left the meeting to have a conversation with a lawyer in the waiting room. He met with reporters during the mediation and stated, “The court is still in trial so nothing can be said.”
SM Entertainment and JYJ have been in trial since last May, going through a total of six hearings to reconcile their differences thus far. However, at the end of last year, both sides failed to reach an agreement and hearings have resumed. In May, both sides expressed their points during the hearing and waited for an official verdict, but the court advised a mutual adjustment so another trial date was issued.
However, the two sides have failed to meet a mutual agreement once again. JYJ’s lawyer told Star News, “The difference in opinion between the two sides is too large. An agreement could not be reached so it was decided that another trial will take place around September 13th.”
The lawyer continued, “SM Entertainment’s side is to ‘forget about the past’, and our side is to settle all the accounts and issues in court. Both sides diverge in opinion, but the court is encouraging a voluntary agreement or a mediation until a decision has been made.”
After three years of both sides battling for an agreement, the chances of the court making the final decision have risen. When the SM Entertainment representatives exited the court, they answered the reporters’ questions saying, “There is nothing for us to say yet.”
In 2009, JYJ stated, “[Please terminate the effects of our unreasonable exclusive contracts],” and filed a case. As the court accepted this, SM Entertainment filed a claim for compensation for damages in April of 2010. In February, the Seoul Central District Court dismissed both of SM Entertainment’s injunctions against JYJ.
After this recent hearing, it’s been confirmed that the exclusive contracts signed by both sides have been nullified, and that the decision to secure the individual entertainment activities of the JYJ members has been upheld.

My cousin and I said “OMG Sun” (hehhehehe), and he looked our way~~! XDDD He smiled (I DIDN’T GET IT ON CAMERA THOUGH. FML)
That little girl has got to be one of the luckiest girls on Earth *Q* I gasped when Junsu was starting to be all cute with the little girl…(I was like OMG)
Jaejoong came out much later…But we were confused (me…and all the people around me) as to where he was, so we got worried. XD
LMAO…That pink phone that dropped is mine…When it dropped, Yoochun noticed it. OTL (Of all the things that could be noticed. /cries/) Also, the bodyguard was being a little strict on cameras, so at the end of the video I had to cautious.
10th August, 2012
Yup, as you’ve guessed I met with the trio, sorry that I kept it a secret.
Why am I meeting them? Well, at this point in time I am unable to write in detail (about it), so let me report little by little.
The time of my arrival was close to when they did so I wondered if I could meet them in the airport. But apparently with a different airline the arrival gate would be different.
So, I had some light meal and headed toward the residence they are staying this time.
It’s situated on a small hill that looks down on LA downtown.
The sort of roofless tourist bus named the Hollywood Tour passed by in front of me. I think it’s the high-end residential area where Hollywood stars live.
After greeting the affiliated staffs Junsu came toward me.
His hair color was, should I say a bit red… or purple-ish… it was dyed a bit.
Seeing me he said as per usual, “Long time no see.” Then he shook my hand.
After that Yoochun came to get drinks from the fridge. Hugging a bunch in his arms he had eye contact with me with a smile. Like saying “Ya!”. Then he said, “Long time no see.”
Then, next was Jaejoong.
As soon as we saw each other we hugged.
Without thinking I said, “As soon as I see Jaejoong my tears are coming out.”
“Why?” Jaejoong asked.
“Because your acting as Kyung-tak san is too great.”
“Have you seen until the end?”
“The finale hasn’t been aired yet… is it tomorrow?”
“Have you seen all the episodes until that (the finale)?”
“I did… They were awesome…excellent.” I said and (unclear if it’s Jaejoong or Hayato-san)became a bit shy.
My impression was Jaejoong got a bit thin.
Though he looked well, as you all should be worried I will ask again tomorrow.
